Discomfort During Pregnancy

During pregnancy, a woman’s center of gravity shifts forward to the front of her pelvis. This additional weight in front, causes stress to the joints of the pelvis and back.

Studies have found that about half of all expectant mothers develop low-back pain at some point during their pregnancies. Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy can relieve and even prevent the pain and discomfort. It is one safe and effective way to help the spine and pelvis cope with the rapid increase in physical stress by restoring a state of balance. In fact, most women have found that chiropractic care helped them avoid the use of pain medications during pregnancy. Dr. DelPlato can provide spinal adjustments, as well as offer nutritional, ergonomic and exercise advice to help address your special needs.
